Re: Accutane cured
May 17, 2003
I've used Accutane 4 previous times in the last ~8 years. I get 100% clear while on it. I actually just started it again, this time trying a long-term low-dose regimen (40mg on monday and thursday).

I only had bad cystic acne the first time I took it. Each time afterword my returning acne has not been as bad and has changed. The first time I had bad cystic acne; the second, third and fourth times I mostly had small to moderate sized red bumps; this last time I had some red bumps and lots of whiteheads and blackheads.

My derm won't prescribe the high doses anymore (he's afraid of the long-term side effects etc.) so he agreed to try this long term regimen. Despite my failure to completely improve my skin, I support the use of Accutane 110% b/c you stil get to have clear skin for at least 6 months!
